CELEBRATING A FIRST BIRTHDAY?
You've watched your cherub baby grow into a tiny person with things to do and places to go. Celebrate this once in a lifetime milestone of turning one in style with one of beautiful portraits and Cake Smash sessions.
Step 1: Book a session
Our First Birthday cake smash sessions are classic and fun. We keep the focus on your darling little one and beautiful cake with simple backdrops. First Birthday with Cake Smash is just $125. Products and digitals can be purchased at your ordering meeting.
Step 2: let us do the work
Add on our Cake Concierge Service to make your session even easier. We will order a two layer, 8" white cake from Whole Foods and have it waiting for you at your session. We also have a handful of adorable first birthday cake toppers at your disposal!
Step 3: Create your art
From perfectly retouched digital images to wall art to albums, we have everything you'll need to remember this adorable milestone. Be sure to take a look at all we have to offer here.
how much are your first birthday sessions?
Our birthday portrait sessions are special and require a little more time than our Classic sessions. We not only want to photograph baby diving into a pristine cake, but also capture baby in a beautiful portrait before the mess. Session is $125 for the creative session fee which includes the photographer's time before, during and after the session (including hopefully LOTS of clean up!) Products and digital images are also available, sold separately at your ordering consultation. For more information on our extensive product offering, click here.
HOW IN THE WORLD DO I STYLE a cake smash SESSION?!
We can help! First of all, keep it simple. Like, really simple. Your BABY is the best prop. So really all you need is a cake you love. We recommend white cakes with white icing. If you love color, consider pastels. We find this look is crisp and elegant, and one our clients love. Let us know what you're thoughts are and we can help style it in a modern way you'll never regret.
If you want just a bit more pizazz, there are options. We love a few balloons scattered on the floor or one oversized balloon floating above baby. Talk to us! We're really good at taking fun ideas and making sure they are styled in a beautiful, modern way.
DO YOU HAVE ANY CAKE TOPPERS?
Cake toppers are the best! We currently have 6 in studio: a gold wire "one", a wooden "one" in natural wood, white, and silver, a "happy birthday" in white wood, and a "Wild One" in white wood. When you arrive we can find the one that best suits your look.
What are your thoughts on bow ties and such?
Honestly speaking, we really love it when baby looks like, well, a baby. Rather than dressing up your sweet boy like it's his first day of work, we recommend considering gorgeous textured clothing like knits and spun cotton, grab an adorable knit hat or diaper cover. Something that will make you want to cuddle on the couch and that shows off his fading chubby rolls.
CAN YOU HELP ME WITH THE CAKE?
Absolutely! We love keeping this process super simple for busy moms. When booking your session, click the box (right above the calendar) to add on an 8" white cake. We can discuss any other details after your session is booked.
